candidate who's under investigation by the fbi. >> the woman who threw the water is married to justin lamar sternad, a democrat who ran for congress in the august primary. he came in third place for the right to run against republican david rivera, who now appears to be in a heap of trouble. our now dried out reporter and a very dapper one, michael putny here to explain what this dousing incident was all about and who exactly is in trouble? >> well, i think we could start with congressman rivera. he certainly is in trouble. as well as justin lamar sternad who we are told now is singing to the top of his lungs to the fbi about how david rivera reportedly financed sternad's campaign. >> i'm sorry to bother you i'm michael putney with channel 10 -- >> and when mrs. sterned opened the door, i got drenched. so as you can see, we are all wet, and justin lamar sternad is not talking, if he is home. his wife threw the water on me. we do know however that mr. sternad is talking to the fbi. and sternad is reportedly saying that congressman david rivera secretly strategized and paid for the democrat's
wife threw the water on me. we do know however that mr. sternad is talking to the fbi. and he's saying that david rivera paid for the democrat's campaign. if true that would be conspiracy. >> he tries to figure out whether congressman david rivera is in trouble for the fbi, for this, too. he has already been under the investigation by the fbi, the irs, the miami-dade state attorneys office and the florida department of law enforcement over financial disclosure issues and allegations that he abused the powers of his office back when he was just a state legislature. now he is a member of congress and the investigation is into republican are getting way more interesting. something kind of weird happens in south florida when it came time for the democrats to pick somebody in their primary to run against congressman david riv a rivera. there was the candidate who everybody expected who had run against him in the past. that was this guy, joe garcia. but in addition, there was another candidate in the primary, and that was this guy. who reported almost no fund raising and who personally had
at present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation which is ongoing and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. but putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo. which were prompted of course by the video. >> there's a caveat there, she said the fbi was still investigating. but the thought was it was a spontaneous reaction. a couple of days before that the libyan president said al qaeda was behind the attack. and days later, the president's spokesman, jay carney says this, it is, i think self-evident that what happened in benghazi was a terrorist attack. well if it was self-evident. then why didn't the president come out and call this exactly what it was, an act of terror on the anniversary of 9/11? >> well this is an event of great interest obviously to the public, to the news media. informatio
violent protest. 50 marines were deployed to yemen to secure the compound n libya, an fbi investigation into the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi under way. sunday, libyan and u.s. officials had two very different versions of what happened. >> the way these perpetrators acted and moved, this leaves us with no doubt that this was preplanned. >> what happened in ben gghazi s a reaction to what had transpired hours before in cairo. >> as you see, two different versions of what supposedly happened in benghazi. protests plead spread into the weekend, the romney campaign argued the crisis exposes a stark contrast between the two candidates. >> if we project weakness, they come. if we are strong, they are -- our adversaries will not test us and our allies will respect us. >> ambassador susan rice fired back yesterday on "meet the press." >> with respect to this i think, vacuous charge of weakness, we have des mated al qaeda. osama bin laden is dead. i spend every day up at the united nations where i have to interact with 192 other countries, i know how with the united states is viewed.
final answer will be available only once the fbi mpletes i inign. >>> spain is set to announce the 2013 budget today. expected to include deep public service cut yakz trying to off set one of the worst deficits in the euro zone. outrage over austerity measures touched off violent prosts in several couriesleentays acss ro s a ek at the markets as we get all up in your business this morning. karen cho is live in london. good morning. >> good morning. the key question for markets is when spain will request a formal bailout which puts a lot of pressure on today's ne conferce. get close look at the 2013 budget. what revenue and spending is going to look like? you mentioned froests on the streets. this tells you how difficult it at home for the prime minister to push through further austerity. there will be more austerity and more o tab tay th sshrime minister tries to push the measure that these are homespun, homegrown reforms rather than ones pressured about it euro zone. in terms of what to expect should be a new tax oversight body. we'l hear news about that limitations onartint wese t ac
. an fbi investigation now under way there. why the two versions? what are you hearing on that? >> reporter: well, they're talking about two different parts of process. on the libyan side of things, they look it from the point of the attack very deliberately in the ways the weapons were used and ammunitions were used. they were evacuated to a safehouse, and the armed gunman proceeded to follow the americans to that safehouse and continue attacking that second location, which was at a very undisclosed area, if you will, away from the embassy or the consulate. the americans are talking more about the protest and the anger that occurred at the moment some of they see gunmen approached. they're not contradicting one another but talking about two different partses of the process. the libyans believe the perpetrators came into the country drawing on the ideology of al qaeda and using the protestors as a cover to attack the u.s. consulate on september 11th. >> what's the situation on the ground right now? >> reporter: well, the situation here remains relatively calm. the people we've been speaking
they had been away eight years and breaks risk adverse and turf protected we know how much the fbi and cia were keeping information to themselves, i play out despite gore's efforts 9/11 happens and even happens worse for a particular reason i'm not going to give away. >> would bo barack obama have happened without george w. bush? >> now, you're beyond. i end mine two years in. i don't have too much inability to forecast the future. the point raised, maybe somebody else would like to raise history. it's clear barack obama wouldn't the nomination and election because of a stir for a compl-- desire for complete change. there's no way i think a new senator could have won the nomination if you didn't have a popular incumbent and desire to change the mood in washington. one of obama's problems right now people are saying you didn't do what you said. i think without bush in the white house and the mood of d discontent it would have been almost impossible for obama to win. >> since you have watched these debates for many years, not to date you, but you have seen a lot of these presidential debates
happened in benghazi, the fbi can't get within 400 miles there to examine the evidence which is already being destroyed, so it's going to be hard to make a case. what about this letter that you have sent asking for answers about what went wrong in benghazi? >> well i have the letter here with me. i could show it to you. i wouldn't change anything. let me be crystal clear as chairman of that committee, and i hope this gets out to other people who are listening about this. >> and i should point out i've got the letter here too. we've gone through it. >> republicans are working overtime to try to exploit a very normal, run of the course, admin strative letter that we agreed to on a bipartisan basis in our committee, simply to get some additional questions put in front of the state department that are part of their already existing investigation. this is not a challenge. it is nothing new. it is not something out of the ordinary. and i agreed to do it as a matter of bipartisanship because we thought these were important questions that people ought to be examining. >> but aren't you concerne
the fbi reporting that in 2010, hate crimes against muslims jumped by 50%, at a time when anti immigrant, anti muslim rhetoric flooded. the rise of hate in america ought not to be an aftermath. oak creeks calls us to have a conversation about hate in america. our candidates, we should watch how they campaign and what they promise to protect this country. >> how we campaign is in part how we'll govern, and the issue we talked about voter suppression, we ought to be able to agree on the health of our demonth mockracy, we want more people in our system. >> and our voices need to be heard. unfortunately, to get to your point about the partisan piece in in congress, issues like that don't come to the table any longer, you can't get a hearing. it's shut down. no discussion. oh, we can do a briefing, but we can't do a hearing, because the republicans control who gets to have a hearing what it will be about. >> we are calling upon the senate judiciary committee to hold a congressional hearing on the rise of hate in america. it's groups across the board. we hope this happens before the election.
kicks in this a huge way. way leads on to way. suddenly there's the mob and fbi within a year or so. nascar comes out of prohibition. if you follow it even further you get to joe kennedy. joe kennedy made a fair amount of money bringing liquor into the country, legally certainly, and perhaps in some other ways -- i'm not here to cast aspersions. however, by the mid 1950s, the guy's worth half a million dollars, his boy wants to be president, john kennedy's there, money changes hands, john kennedy's in office. we go to the moon. i'm not sure that happens if kerry nation doesn't want into sullivan's. >> johnny, you follow that? >> they didn't teach me that in sixth grade history. >> that's the thing. they leave out the stuff that makes history cool. my dad's an eighth grade social studies teacher for real and it always bugged me that when we look at shows today and ask ourselves why aren't people more jazzed by the fun of this, it's because we've become like a nation of correctors. you know? the guys in the tweed coats with the patches on the sleeves, they're just waiting to hear the
-- >> this benghazi story by the way is a huge story. right now dee dee myers the fbi won't even go into benghazi because it is so dangerous which leads you to wonder why they didn't listen to warnings before the attack and before our u.s. ambassador was killed. this is one of those issues and i think charles krauthammer said it perfectly today in "the washington post" that if mitt romney actually knew how to put forth an argument. >> right. >> he could really be grabbing attention. >> one of the problems was he jumped out ahead of this and politicized it in the hours immediately after the attack which discredited him in the media term as a spokesman for the other side. >> it was -- krauthammer said he could have done it so much better. >> and established himself as an alternative voice. he didn't do that and hasn't been able to do that. as a press secretary it is a very uncomfortable position. >> you get elements of al qaeda, you get leon panetta saying it's not al qaeda. this is an absolute mess. and it shows real negligence on the administration's part. >> joe, listen. this also tells you a lo
